However, the only post-64 1894 I own is a gun made in 1994 in the 6 million range and it does have the screw in the link. When was the screw reintroduced to 1894s?

Correction I own 2 post-64 1894s. The one mentioned above and a slightly earlier one that is pre-safety in 45 colt. This gun also has the link pin screw.

My guess is someone has fitted a pre-64 link to your post 64 gun. Check out this website:

That would be very odd since I bought the 1994 made carbine new in the box in 1994. The gun is a 1894-1994 commemorative large lever 18″ saddle ring carbine angle eject with the safety through the receiver. 6 million serial range.

1990 would be in the 5600000 range and not a “Winchester” production gun.  The 5.2 million serial range was when the USRACo took over production of the Model 94 in 1981.
